How to reset the alarm on 2003 honda odyssey

I was away for the weekend and my factory installed audible alarm went off for no apparent reason. I was inside my mother in laws house and hit the unlock button on my remote- took me about 2 minutes to get it-the alarm stopped and I hit the lock button on remote- lights flashed letting me know it was locked.
I left later in the day and drove home - about 1.5 hr drive-when I got home my remote would not lock the vehicle- I had to use my other remote-it locks and unlocks vehicle but the alarm no longer sets.
I thought it might be a problem with the first remote battery so I started to change it- I was inside the house and the alarm went off - on the drive way.
The first remote still does not work even after trying to reset it as per directions on other feeds- key in - position II - push "lock" button - repeat 3 times- locks cycle to program mode-
So, I have one remote that won't unlock or lock the vehicle, but it will start it and I can drive without issue.
I have another remote which will lock and unlock the vehicle and start the car.
But... I seem to have NO audible alarm.
I have heard about a "valet/reset" button or switch but cannot locate it under the dash.
Have also heard about fuse # 13 for passenger door & alarm reset but have not tried that one yet.
Can you help at all or am I stuck going to pay a Honda tech to fix what should be a simple problem??
Thanks in advance.

sounds like the drivers side key switch has failed remove the interior door panel and there will be a switch attached to the back of the key lock cylinder or around there it should be two or three wires also check the door jamb wire harness where the door closes for any broken or damaged wires, use a vot meter and see if you get power or ground to the opposite side of the switch when you use the key to lock and unlock the door if nothing changes and there is power or ground! at this switch i would replace it, i don't think there is one but if the car has a passenger side key hole try to unlock the car from that side and see if you get the same problem -jeff

more than likely you have a bad lock actuator in one of the doors usually the drivers door

2001 chevy s10 alarm going off randomly and for no apparent reason

The factory alarm is a content alarm. It looks to see if a door is opened without being disarmed by using the key or the fob. Most likely cause is a door latch assembly that is malfunctioning and sending a false signal triggering the alarm. As a side note: If there is an aftermarket alarm installed, that's another issue and should be taken to an alarm installer for diagnosis.

My car alarm has gone off twice for no reason. The keys were inside the house and the alarm still went off. It is a 2008 Pontiac Torrent with approx 68000 kilometers. Any ideas as to why?

You might just need to have sensitivity turned down or,was it hot out? If it is an after market alarm, sounds like they installed a mercury vibration sensor, These tend to go off easier because, as you know, mercury expands when hot. Making the contact gap more sensitive. I would be suprised, but it's worth looking into. Very old school set up.

I have a 1995 mitsubishi diamante and I can no longer open any of the doors without the alarm going off. the only way to shut it off is to wait the five minutes or so until it shuts itself off. Please tell...

need some information here first ?? like is it a factory immobilisor alarm or a weekend boy racer add on alarm because if its the latter then it should have a switch on the main housing for turning it off ,if its the factory immobilisor then its a dealer only job

You should never leave $$$$ things like that inside a locked up car. Factory alarm systems only go off if the doors are opened. All the crooks know this. You need to have a glass breakage sensor added to your system.

2004 mercedes c240 alarm sounds for no apparent reason

Hi, You need to replace the alarm siren. It is also a module. It is located in the right front fender well. The reason they go bad is because they are located in a place where they get wet.
